Sydney, London, 05th May 2014 – against a backdrop of record aircraft orders and continued industry optimism, two aviation experts announce a stellar new partnership.

Oriel and CAPA today announced an exciting new venture with leading aircraft valuations experts Oriel. Oriel will be the sole provider of aircraft valuations and lease rate data to CAPA’s online Fleets database. The new holistic service launches today.

This latest era of cooperation with Oriel follows a year of continuous investment and enhancement to CAPA’s Fleets database by a dedicated, global team of data specialists. In this latest development, Oriel will deliver generic market values linked to individual aircraft, current base values and market lease rates, updated monthly.

Peter Harbison, executive chairman, CAPA says:

“We are delighted to join forces with Oriel. Directors Les Weal and Olga Razzhivina are two of the most respected figures in aviation finance, with over 35 years’ collective experience in aircraft valuations. Our new agreement ensures we deliver the very best industry data to our rapidly expanding global client base.”

“Oriel is proud to be associated with CAPA and we look forward to collaborating with the team both in Sydney and London,” says Les Weal, director at Oriel. “In addition to delivering the latest generic aircraft values, my fellow founding director Olga Razzhivina and I will work closely with CAPA to support their series of leading international conferences and market briefings.”

CAPA and Oriel share a renewed sense of optimism on the outlook for the industry. This improved sentiment is reflected in the latest edition of Oriel’s Values In Perspective VIP report, which this month also features an article from CAPA’s London-based chief financial analyst Jonathan Wober.
